Clean and very comfortable, with all amenities. Would certainly go back.
Hi Colin and Leslie, glad you had a good holiday and that you were warm and comfortable. Very much looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Carole and Pete. Property Owner
"The bungerlow was really comfortable and relaxing."
Beautiful views from the bungerlow and amazing scenery easy to get to. Would highly recommend.

"What a truly great property in a unbelievable location."
I had a very calm and relaxing time in the picturesque village of Llwngwril and will most definitely be coming back.The location has to be seen to to be believed and whilst there i felt as if i had been transported to another world. Fortunately my visit coincided with the best weather of the year and provided a stunning backdrop to the area. The property is located opposite Hendre Hall which has a great little bar and coffee shop also there is a well stocked farm shop on the site as well.Also a short walk up the road is a friendly pub which provides great food for when you don't feel like cooking. The highlight for me were the numerous beaches all easily accessible these included:Fairbourne(which is stunning as the sun comes down),Twyne(a small quiet resort),Barmouth(a busier bustling place) and my personal favourite Tal y Bont(very quiet and more remote). You will i am sure be able to curate your visit to your own personal taste and the area will take care of the rest. The property itself had absolutely everything that i needed and i am happy to provide a recommendation.Many thanks to you Peter and Carole.
Dear Matt, thank you for your wonderful review, really pleased that you had a great holiday. We would be more than happy to welcome you once again and recommend a lot more places that we know you would love. Carole and Pete. Property Owner
"Really lovely holiday home, plenty of space, only thing we didn't like was the creaky bed in the upstairs room."
"Brynteg is a fantastically positioned cottage for exploring the west coast of Wales."
The village of Llwyngwril is charming and had recently had a garden show. It was full of yarn bombing including a very impressive dragon just a few doors away. The cottage is well placed for accessing lovely beaches at Aberdovey to the south and Barmouth to the north. There are also several small gauge steam railways nearby and we road them all during our week in the area. There was a playground across the road and the cottage was just a 5min walk to the beach where we explored rock pools and enjoyed kite flying. We were four adults and two children (6 and 2) and there was plenty of space in the cottage for all of us. Our grandchildren loved the big back garden and enjoyed playing there. As adults we were happy to know it was secure and they were safe there. The cottage itself was tidy and welcoming and had most everything we needed for our stay. I missed the notation that towels were not included and we had a mad dash to find somewhere late Saturday afternoon where we could purchase some. Even without these it would have been helpful to have dishcloths for drying available in the kitchen. It was useful having a washing machine available. However, we only found three pegs for the washing line and there was no airer available in the cottage which made it very challenging to get clothes dry after washing. In spite of comments and requests from previous guests there is still a lack of rails or hooks in the bathroom for wet towels and this was very difficult with six of us using the bathroom facilities. I have noted from other reviews that guests have been commenting on the beds as being rickety, squeaking on movement and not particularly comfortable. These comments have been in several reviews since 2018. Although the owners stated they had replaced mattresses at some point we found that the beds overall, but particularly the one upstairs and the two twin beds were noisy and uncomfortable. This has not been the case in other Sykes cottages with similar ratings where we have stayed. I would encourage the owners to bite the bullet and purchase new bed frames and mattresses for the property to ensure that guests have a good night’s sleep while staying here. Overall feedback would be much improved if this was done. We so much enjoyed our week in the area and would love to come back. We would definitely stay at Brynteg again if we could be assured that these issues commented on regularly by guests were rectified. Thank you Carole and Pete.
"A wonderful location in a sweet little village with stunning scenery."
The house was spacious, clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed our stay. Plenty of local walks, including the lovely walk over the bridge to Barmouth, and easy access to trips further afield. There were some challenges which have been mentioned by previous reviewers, which if fixed would boost reviews - It could be made clearer in the listing that there are no towels are provided (towels simply aren't mentioned), The fridge door lower shelf is missing, No blinds in the upper bedroom meant very early morning wake-ups, Upper bedroom bed base feels broken somehow - rather uncomfortable, Some thoughtful touches missing - not major, but make a difference - lack of hooks on doors, lack of lock on bathroom etc. If fixed these would all make a big difference. We had a great holiday in a lovely location.
Hello Ruth, sorry about the towels, we always tell people when they ring about key instructions that you need to take towels, unfortunately you were en-route when you phoned. We have looked on the details and yes you are right there is nothing on there to say take your own towels so will ring Sykes to have it put on. We will measure up and fit blinds to the dormer windows as you are the third person to mention this ( I have never had them fitted as I like the sun shining through them when I wake up) but that’s my choice. I don’t like hooks attached to the doors but have seen some that fit over the door so will get some. We had new mattresses on all beds two years ago and are not aware of any problem with divan base but again will look at it this coming weekend. Regards Carole and Pete. Property Owner
"This is a very nice and spacious dormer bungalow with large rooms, that is very close to a rocky beach, with a pub and a small village shop within a short walk."
The rooms are comfortable and the kitchen is really nice and large easily catering for 6 occupants. I would recommend this property.
Dear John, thank you for your kind comments, really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Brynteg . Hope to see you soon. Carole and Pete. Property Owner
"Brynteg is a really homely and surprisingly spacious bungalow, well laid out with everything you need for a comfortable stay."
It's location is idealy situated for exploring the local and wider area of this lovely section of Welsh coastline..
Hello Andy, glad you had a good holiday and we’re comfortable at Brynteg and would love to welcome you back ( we keep a welcome in these hillsides) . We have sent your charger via post office. Regards Carole. Property Owner
"This is the second time we have stayed here."
Llwyngwryl is a lovely little village. It is an ideal base to travel to other areas, ie Aberdovey, Tywyn, Barmouth, Dolgoch falls. The property is very spacious and is a real home from home. The kitchen is well equipped. All the rooms are generous in size and the off road parking gives peace of mind. It is lovely to sit in the peaceful garden and have your meals or a drink. You can easily walk to the pebble beach and there is seating to look across to Barmouth. June 2013
Hello Denise, feel as though we are friends now which is lovely, so glad you enjoyed your stay at Brynteg and that the weather was good to you. We very much look forward to welcoming you back in the future, regards Carole and Pete. Property Owner
"Have a great time and brilliant weather."
Property very spacious, comfortable and clean. Well equipped, good Wifi service. Met the owners as we were leaving and they are lovely people, keen to ensure you had a good stay and open to any suggestions.
Hi Jim, sorry about the late reply but I have only just spotted it! So glad that you had a lovely holiday ( you had one of the few good weeks in June) hoping to welcoming you back to this wonderful part of the world. Regards Carole and Pete. Property Owner
"Lovely location, spotlessly clean."
Good sized rooms and everything you need. The train station is close by ,so you can travel to different places. Go to Arthog ,there is a lovely walk up to the lakes and back down by beautiful waterfalls. I would recommend this holiday home ,it's a good base. Pete very helpful too. Shame about our weather .
hi Jackie, so glad that apart from the weather you enjoyed staying in Brynteg , hopefully we can welcome you again in the not too distant future and that the weather will be a lot kinder to you .Thank you for your kind comments Carole and Pete. Property Owner
"We just come back from a wonderful holiday in Brynteg, Llwryngwril!"
The cottage is spacious with 3 large bedrooms, a lovely sitting room and a great kitchen, well equipped where we were happy to cook most days. The internet connection is very good too. There is a garden where we relaxed on our last day before our journey back to London ! The place is very comfortable and we felt "home" straight away. It is a perfect location: easy access to the lovely Llwryngwril beach, public footpaths and close to Barmouth, Tywyn and Dolgellau for great hiking in Snowdonia! The owner, Peter, is very friendly and could not be more helpful. The weather was very sunny all week apart from one rainy day :). We are very happy with our stay ad it was an amazing break from our busy life! We will definitely recommend this place and might come back at some point !
Hello Corinne, so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday and that you found the cottage comfortable and homely, very much looking forward to welcoming you back . The farm opposite has now opened a farm shop which sells all locally sourced produce which is excellent and they say that by this summer they will be opening a little tea shop! I think it will be a great hit with our guests. Property Owner
"Absolutely beautiful house, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, there is plenty of storage and even a good selection of dvd's."
The garden is perfect for the kids to run around and they loved swapping beds so that each of them got a chance to have the room upstairs. Just incase there are other people as unobservant as me , the freezer is hidden in a cupboard next to the dining table, next to the fridge but facing the other way. There are plenty of walks in the local area and I can highly recommend the pub for a lovely meal. We will be back to stay soon.
Dear Helen ,thank you so much for your comments. We are so pleased that you had a good holiday and were comfortable. Looking forward to welcoming you again soon. Carole and Pete. Property Owner
"We really enjoyed our stay in this property, plenty of room and clean and comfortable."
Sea views out the front windows were lovely and being situated in such a pretty village only a few miles from the Barmouth railway walks was great. (Only drawback was difficulty in getting in the property for disabled member of party but that was not the fault of the owner as property not advertised as disabled friendly).
Dear Richard, so sorry that you had difficulty entering our bungalow, I really don’t know how we can improve accessibility. Really pleased that you were comfortable and felt at home, yes it is a beautiful part of Wales and we are pleased to be able to let others see for themselves just how beautiful Wales is . Property Owner
"Well equipped, comfortable, plenty of room, off road parking, close to beach, nice local pub, good base for visiting parts of Noth Wales."
Dear Peter ,so pleased you had a lovely holiday and that you found the bungalow comfortable. We hope to see you back again next year, regards Carole and Pete. Property Owner
"We couldn’t have asked for a better location the area was absolutely stunning and a good base to explore."
On first glance the bungalow was spacious and it had everything described on the site. The owners were attentive when we had a problem and contacted us straight away. There are good size rooms with plenty of space for clothes and hangers (usually a problem in most places we stay). A few areas are lacking that could be easily rectified and which would really elevate this property. - Hooks in the bathroom to hang damp towels. - Dressing tables in the bedroom, or at least one in a bedroom, as there are mirrors but not easily comfortable to access when doing make up and hair. - The top floor bed needs replacing as it’s so rickety and noisy that we had disturbed sleep every night. - Some pots and pans need replacing as they’re buckled and don’t sit flat on the hob, which means they don’t heat up quickly or effectively. It’s also very hard to decipher the temperature settings as the numbers were worn off. - Back door lock needs attention as it’s stiff and couldn’t remove key when unlocked. While it is stated that towels and tea towels are not supplied, it would be nice touch as with a large family they are bulky items to bring with you. Not to get too bogged down on the negatives we did have a good time and it is a homely property with owners who care about your stay.
Dear Darrin , There is a towel rail on the shower door as you will have noticed and I personally don’t like hooks, we usually hang the towels outside on the line. We feel that the property is furnished to a really good standard with full length mirrors and seats in the two main bedrooms.on the subject of the bed upstairs I am sorry that you didn’t sleep well but the problem is not actually the bed( which had a brand new mattress last year) it is a problem with the headboard which we have at times had to secure and obviously need to re-fix to the wall. We will look at the back door lock next week . Thank you for your comments,Carole( property owner) Property Owner
"Enjoyed our week in Brynteg."
..large spacious rooms...some lovely furniture and bedding...stunning sunsets and beautiful views...nice pub and local shop minutes away
Dear Dot, so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Brynteg, thank you for your positive comments and hopefully we will see you again in the future. Property Owner
"Had a wonderful holiday."
It was very bright and spacious and it really did feel like our home. We enjoyed sitting in the garden, which had an assortment of garden furniture to sit on. Enjoyed on a night a gentle walk past the pygmy goats, which my daughter loved, to sit on a bench over looking the sea and watch the sun go down.
Dear Denise, thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are so pleased that you had a good holiday and that you found the bungalow comfortable. We also love taking the grand children to feed the goats and you can spend hours just watching their antics! Hoping to welcome you back to Brynteg in the future, Carole and Pete. Property Owner
"A comfortable stay in a very convenient location - great for the train station and a ride on the most scenic railway line in the UK, handy for getting to some of the smaller railways around Wales (and Castles), brilliant for walking the local part of the Wales Coast Path and the hills above and beyond Fairbourne, Barmouth and the Mawddach Estuary and just in the right place to experience the most beautiful sunsets that are the speciality of this area, particularly when the weather is as glorious as it has been for our stay."
Oh, and we loved the plastic tablecloth!!!
Thank you for your positive comments (we note your comments regarding serving spoon and will be purchasing one for future guests) so pleased you had a lovely holiday and hope to welcome you back in the future. Carole Morbey Property Owner
"This property compared with others at similar prices we have visited was lacking in several ways."
There were only 2 mirrors in the property neither of which where useable for hair dryers unless you brought an an extension lead with you .Also no hair dryer ,no towels, bottom door shelf on fridge missing .,baking trays were not clean enough to use .Also no hooks in the bathroom and my pet hate plastic tablecloths ! The position of the property was good ,wonderful scenery but the holiday was marred by lack of attention to detail .
Dear Madam, I feel you are being totally unreasonable, you were told prior to your stay that we do not supply tea towels or bath towels. There is a full mirror on the front bedroom wardrobe( you may have had to move the seat at the bottom of the bed a few inches. There is also a full length mirror in the upstairs bedroom. Sorry that you hate plastic tableclothes( it is there as we do not wish our £800.00 table to be damaged( but if you had looked you would have seen two beautiful tablecloth’s in the airing cupboard!!All kitchenware is spotless(it is washed in the dishwasher prior to guests arriving. In answer to your very negative comments may I point out to you that we take great pride in our property and the positive reviews that we have received to date. We have never left a hairdryer because we feel that it is a personal item but we will be buying one for our next guests.regards Mrs CA Morbey. Property Owner
"We found Brynteg very roomy, comfortable and well equipped."
It was spotlessly clean. We enjoyed the sea view from the lounge. We did think double glazing would make the bungalow cosier as a lot of heat is lost through the large windows. Also some coat hooks in the hall and on the bathroom and bedroom doors would have been useful. We would certainly recommend this property.
Thank you so much for your comments, really happy that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you in the future. Property Owner
"Brilliant communications throughout with the owners, bungalow is very spacious ..."
Brilliant communications throughout with the owners, bungalow is very spacious with everything needed, lovely location 5 minutes from beach, bungalow was spotlessly clean, will definetly return Cheryl and kellard
"The property is clean and spacious and the beds are comfortable!"
There is lots to do around the local area and the beach at Fairbourne is lovely and almost deserted much of the time. The local pub is friendly and the food is good, the wall across the estuary to Barmouth is great and there is a fab second hand bookshop in Barmouth too (and another great bookshop in Dolgellau).
"We were very pleased with this wonderful accommodation and would highly recommend."
Very clean and comfortable with large spacious rooms throughout.
"A comfortable, clean and well equipped house, even in these unusual times."
Hosts friendly and helpful. Easy access to bus, train and local walks. Would highly recommend this property.
"The house was well equipped have not done self catering for a long time."
Due to coved situation we cooked at home. Everything you could need was in the kitchen. A real homely place in a beautiful spot. Owner was helpful when we spoke to him suggesting nice walks. A real welcome break feeling safe in all this madness
"Brynteg is a spacious house overlooking Cardigan Bay."
The view of the sea from the front of the property changed every day with some fabulous sunsets in the evening. The local pub has been closed this year but the shop is just a short walk away. The owners had prepared the house beautifully and has every modern convenience. The shower and bathroom were excellent. We enjoyed our time there as there is so much to see and do in the local area. We visited Portmeirion, The Mach Loop [where we saw a Hawk jet scream through at low level], the local steam railway, Snowdonia and Snowdon, Harlech, and also enjoyed walks in the many local beauty spots with lakes and waterfalls. Staggered by the lack of traffic, excellent road network, and stunning scenery, this is a holiday for someone who enjoys nature and beauty rather than bright lights and night life. We found the local people friendly, helpful and welcoming. Thank you for welcoming us to your lovely cottage.
"Bungalow first class plenty of room very relaxing beautiful views would definitely return and recommend."
Apart from the bungalow we had in Florida this is probably the best accommodation we’ve stayed in. But we didn’t like it we loved it
"We loved Brynteg and would definitely consider going back in the future."
The location was perfect, in a lovely village with a park and beach across the road. Really beautiful place. The only thing that it could possibly improve on is to supply some hand towels and soap in the bathroom, the upstairs bed has seen better days and it had a bit of a musty smell (assuming it’s from the owners dog?) Overall we had a fab holiday and we are missing the rolling hillside and mountains already!
"The bungalow was spacious, clean and well equipped, with the following exceptions : all mattresses badly need replacing freezer not working fridge shelves were broken - fridge needs replacing double glazing has failed on some windows and needs replacing back door very difficult to lock and unlock blinds would have been good on the upstairs velux windows lock on bathroom door would have been nice, also hooks somewhere for towels Would have been nice to have the heating on before our arrival (at the end of October) as the bungalow was absolutely freezing, and took a good 24 hours to warm up."
Thank you for feedback. There is now a new fridge and the freezer is working. The windows have been replaced and the back door lock has been repaired. The mattresses have now been replaced. We are sorry that you were disappointed with some aspects of the property. Property Owner
"Maybe the cottage could provide a small freezer."
"Bryteg is a holiday home but also a ‘home from home’ where you immediately feel comfortable and find everything to hand."
The beds were comfortable the heating and the shower powerful and hot, and we felt very happy staying there! It is a credit to its owners and we found it very clean everywhere on arrival. The Bungalow is well situated and has views of the bay from the lounge window - something of a great for us seeing the sea every morning as we live in the Centre of England - and from where we could easily check to confirm that the train was running, not that it didn’t even during the storms we experienced during our visit! The station is a ten minute walk and offers a very convenient and inexpensive service into Barmouth, £4 return, and the opportunity to travel over the Railway Viaduct across the Mawddach Estuary. A well stocked Co-Op is to be found next to the Station there also! You can take the train to places north in Snowdonia, such as Harlech and Porthmadog and south to Aberdyfi and Machynlleth - all in were in easy reach if you preferred to leave the car at home. We used Brynteg as a base for travelling on some of the “Great Little Trains of Wales”, one of which, the Talyllyn was a 15 minute drive away south based in the seaside resort of Towyn, where we spent a memorable day on “The Victorian Train” which runs on selected Thursdays in June, July and September. All in all, we found that the village was well situated for easy access to the surrounding areas, and the neighbours and locals polite and very friendly. The wide range of specially knitted knitted artefacts, displayed in many different places throughout Llwyngwril.
"Excellent location for visiting attractions etc, brilliant bungalow more than exceeded our expectations."
A little moan though there were no towels or dishcloths, I dont know if this was stated on the description as we booked last min as our original holiday was cancelled by Sykes because of fault in original house. Other than that 1000% brilliant.
"Excellent cottage, very comfortable."
Lovely base to explore this part of North Wales. Nice village pub 3 mins away. Certainly revisit.
